First published in 1956 The Ascent of Rum Doodle uickly became established as a mountaineering classic As an outrageously funny spoof about the ascent of a 40. This book is a gem It s a spoof on every mountaineering expedition book or documentary you ve ever read or watched There are so many uotable absurdities that I wouldn t know where to start and the illustrations are just as much fun as the book It s always funny sometimes even laugh out loud funny which isn t something I experience often If you enjoy off the wall British humour then this is for you especially if you re a fan of mountaineering adventure The book has a cult following with Rum Doodle restaurants and BBs across the world and even has its own website I ve no idea how it has escaped my attention until now but now that it has it s a firm favouriteThank you so much to my Goodreads friend Daren for reviewing this recently You cheered up my lockdown
